The United Kingdom of Greater Orcadia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Iain Gordon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 8.621 billion Greater Orcadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Healthcare, with Education and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edinburgh. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Greater Orcadian economy, worth 365 trillion Orcadian Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,451 Orcadian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Greater Orcadian mussels the biggest in Teremara, Greater Orcadia has designated Edinburgh as its capital city, Iain Gordon has just been declared ruler of Greater Orcadia in an international press conference, and Christianity has been named as Greater Orcadia's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Orcadia's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Greater Orcadia is ranked 192,627th in the world and 17th in Teremara for Most Extreme, scoring 15.14 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
